Police Looking for Suspects Wanted for Knife-Point Robberies at Queens Subway Stations

June 28, 2018 By Christian Murray

The police are looking for two suspects wanted in connection to two knife-point robberies that took place at subway stations this month.

The first incident occurred on Monday, June 18, when the suspects, a male and a female, approached a 29-year-old man at the Court Square “G” subway station at 9:30 p.m. and asked for a MetroCard swipe before displaying a knife.

The pair then took $140 dollars from the victim’s pockets and fled. The victim was not injured, police said.

Then on Friday, June 22, at about 8:40 p.m., the suspects approached a 30-year-old man on the staircase at the Broadway ‘7’ subway station in Jackson Heights, police said. They then blocked him from leaving and displayed a knife.

The pair took his wallet containing $2, credit cards and ID cards, police said.

There were no injuries.

Both suspects are described as black. The man was wearing a white T-Shirt and gray sweatpants.

The female suspect is approximately 5 feet 5 inches tall, and was last seen wearing a white tank top. She was holding a black bag.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Keep believing NYC is SO SAFE as our puppet Police Commissioner and Bill DumBlasio would have you believe. Compstat (look up how stats are manipulated). Developers don’t want big crime stats as people won’t move in. Why did it happen on June 18, but we find out 10 days later.?The other June 22, 6 days later?

Yes these two crimes prove that all crime stats in a city of 10 million people are completely fake.

I agree with you though, that greedy developers, like the president you voted for, regularly lie to people. Someone would have to be as gullible as you to believe them.

Not all crime is manipulated . Just enough to keep people believing they are SAFE. These gaps in news somehow are probably developer driven to be released at a later date. Many of the dislikes given to people who comment on this site,many by developers who advertise on LICPOST. That’s OK the truth hurts. MRIRONY you are becoming more Ironic every time you comment.
